7 A Train to Gain learner funded from mainstream FE funds is defined as “Train to Gain badged”.
8 Funded Train to Gain Aims are identified where the LSC Funding Stream is flagged as being Train to Gain (A10=60)
9 Train to Gain Like Aims are identified where the LSC Funding Stream is flagged as being Further Education (A10=20) and the age of the learner when they started the aim was 19 or over (A_AGESTB>=3) and the aim is flagged as being Train to Gain badged provision (A46a or A46b=64)
10 An aim is Fully Brokered when the aims if flagged as being Train to Gain (A_TTGAIN>0) and has valid Broker contract (A54 <>9999999999), if the Broker contract=9999999999, then the aim is Not Fully Brokered.
